Goodreads Catch-Up Read-a-Thon

FINAL WRAP-UP--not much of a success.  I finished The Color Purple and read some from other books.  Having the flu did not all! Total pages read:  380

Thanks again to Once Upon a Chapter for hosting.  Wish I could have done better.

Yes, I know...another read-a-thon. But, as I was getting ready to have another self-imposed read-a-thon anyway, this couldn't come at a better time. Stephanie at Once Upon a Chapter is hosting this one.  Here are the details from her blog:

*Will run from 2/24 (12:01 AM) to 3/1 (11:59 PM).

*If you are a blogger, please do a post announcing your participation. If you want to do all of your updating from one post, that is completely fine by me. (You can also grab the smaller button below.)

*I will be having mini-challenges throughout the week. Two for US residents and one for my international friends!

*I can’t stress this enough: HAVE FUN with the read-a-thon!

To sign up, visit her BLOG

What will I be reading...hmmm?

Gone with the Wind by Margaret Mitchell (yes, I'm still trying to catch up for the read-a-long)
The Secret History by Donna Tartt
Oleanna by Julia K. Rose
Macbeth by Shakespeare
The Book of Lost Fragrances by M.J. Rose
The Color Purple by Alice Walker (finish on Tuesday for TuesBookTalk)

I'm going to use this post for all my updates and I will make it a sticky post.


So clearly the update template didn't work since I haven't been updating because I've been sick with the flu.  Yuck! I'm still sick...not as bad as I was, but still not 100%.  I did a little bit of reading though.

I read:
The Color Purple by Alice Walker....87 pages, finished
The Secret History by Donna Tartt....23 pages
The Book of Lost Fragrances by M.J. Rose....53 pages
Oleanna by Julia K. Rose...currently reading, on page 23

I'm still reading and will continue through the end of the read-a-thon tomorrow night!



Thank you for visiting and taking the time to comment. It means so much.

I apologize for word verification, but as soon as I changed the settings from only users with Google accounts, I started receiving a ton of spam comments...within one hour of changing the settings. The bots are on high alert apparently.

  1. Thank you! :) I am signed up now! :)

  2. I am always finding addicting read-a-thons through you! Have fun this week!

  3. Michelle: Thank you for posting this or I wouldn't have known. I am signing up. Good Luck.
